PyCharm 5.1 Beta 2 is available
Today we announce the release of PyCharm 5.1 Beta 2, an updated feature-complete preview version of the future PyCharm 2016.1. The build #145.256.43 is already available for download and evaluation from the EAP page.
Yesterday we announced the new versioning model for all JetBrains Toolbox products. With the nearest release, former PyCharm 5.1 will become PyCharm 2016.1. The new versioning will be aligned with releases of other JetBrains tools, following the new YYYY.R format. Please read more about new versioning in the JetBrains Toolbox—Release and Versioning Changes blog post.
Important note: As the versioning migration process takes some time, currently build #145.256.43 has old versioning (PyCharm 5.1 Beta) inside the build. We’re going to finally change versioning with the PyCharm 2016.1 Release Candidate which is planned for next week.
The full list of fixes and improvements for this build can be found in the release notes.
Download PyСharm 5.1 Beta 2 for your platform and please report any bugs and feature requests to our Issue Tracker. It also will be available shortly as a patch update from within the IDE (from the previous EAP build only) for those who selected the EAP or Beta Releases channels in the update settings.
Stay tuned for a PyCharm 2016.1 release announcement and follow us on Twitter.
